Who Turner Marketing really is

AUTHOR: Tom - (United States of America)

This is an old Biz Op guy from NY that has changed company names more times than probably even he can remember. Recently, but before Turner Marketing, they have been called Star Vending, Vendbusiness and Evirtu Inc. He went by Mike for a number of years but his real name is Thomas Ligor, who just recently was released from prision. Here is the FTC findings in 2004 on Thomas (Tommy).

Feds arrest 11 in New York City area vending scam that netted $6 million

Feds arrest 11 in New York City area vending scam that netted $6 million

Eleven people were arrested Tuesday by federal officials on charges they tricked customers into paying for vending machines that often were never delivered and vending machine routes that failed to bring in the big profits that were promised, according to court papers and the US attorney's office.

Officials with the FBI and the US Postal Inspection Service said those arrested worked for corporations involved in a scheme that raked in more than $6 million from machine sales between January 2000 and December 2002, reported Long Island Newsday.

Those arrested were charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and appeared before US Magistrate Michael Orenstein in Central Islip on Tuesday. They were: Richard Guadagno Sr., 45, and Richard Guadagno Jr., 24, both of 4 Harbor Circle, Centerport; Sidney Silver, 75, of 93 Wilson Place, Plainview; Thomas Ligor, 30, of 4220 Douglaston Pkwy., Little Neck; Leonard Geller, 71, of 41 W. 86th St., New York; Howard Kelly, 64, of 35 Maple Ave., Bay Shore; Michael Brett, 48, of 3 Sandgate Place, Melville; Joseph McDonald, 40, of 23 Peppermint Rd., Commack; Ronald Dent, 58, 386 Stuyvesant Ave., Brooklyn; Aimee Pereira, 22, of 95 Parkway Dr., Plainview; and Charles Rizzo, 53, of 14 New York Ave., Massapequa.

Richard Guadagno Sr., who federal officials identified as the lead defendant and president, was held in jail. Silver was released on a personal recognizance bond and Pereira was held because the conditions of her bond were not met. The rest of the defendants were released on bail, said a court clerk. Anthony Hall of Miami, another defendant named in the complaint, was already in custody in Florida on unrelated charges, the U.S. attorney spokesman said. Additional arrests are expected. The defendants are associated with Castle Marketing Inc., Essex Marketing Group Inc., Westbrook Marketing Associates LLC, Westbrook Marketing Group Inc., Manhattan Vending LLC and USA Vending Inc., corporations with offices in Greenlawn and East Farmingdale, according to court documents.

Between March 2000 and December 2002, the corporations offered vending machines and routes for sale to customers across the country, placing advertisements in newspapers that claimed the routes were available for a limited time. Salespeople working for the corporation relayed a number of false claims when interested customers called, exaggerating profit projections, saying machines were being sent when they were not and claiming the company had an exclusive distribution arrangement for Procter & Gamble's Pringles potato chips, according to court documents. The scam also steered customers to companies that promised to place machines in prime spots, the court papers said. Golden Key issued a "no money loss guarantee" and charged about $200 per machine. One unidentified customer received written information by mail that promised more than $79,000 per year in profits for 15 machines, court papers said. In 2003, about six machines grossed the customer $1,148. The 15 machines cost him $20,925.

Beware......

clarification

AUTHOR: vending - (United States of America)

This customer paid us for one machine on Friday 01/04/13 and made a deposit late in the afternoon. His brand new machine was ordered from the manufacturer on Tuesday 01/08/13   He was also provided with three locations on Wednesday 01/09/13 which are all very busy that want his machine.  Everything that this customer paid for and is written on his contract he will be receiving. He also will be receiving a product bonus check to contribute for his first time fill of his machine which we normally don't do on a purchase of just one machine.
